Everything has its place, but when you waste time at the cost of your true happiness it is not good. I dropped every unnecessary activity so that I could meditate and try to know God, so that I could day and night be in His divine consciousness.

Be still. Stop struggling. Enter the holy shrine of your heart, and there find peace and joy. You have always been perfect and you will always be perfect. There's absolutely nothing you have to delete or add.

True meditation only begins when initially, using your discrimination, you cut off everything that does not go with the 'I am' - which includes the body-mind identification, which is the major obstacle. You should not have the feeling "I am so-and-so meditating" or "I am sitting at this particular place, in this posture, meditating on..." all these externalities must go. It should be only the knowledge 'I am' that should be meditating on itself. It is only when the purity of 'I am' is maintained in meditation that there is a chance that it will disappear.

The Guru is indeed very generous; see how stubbornly he persists with you. He knows your potential and also knows that at least theoretically you understand his teaching. By repeatedly hammering away at the teaching he wants you to get stabilized in the 'I am', for only then do you stand a chance to transcend it. He is constantly urging you or trying to push you into the 'Turiya' or fourth state. This he does tirelessly and relentlessly with anyone who comes to him and in whom he senses a genuine seeker. So, after expounding everything, he says: "Now that you have understood everything, just be."

You are too full of gibberish, you know too much. Because of your borrowed knowledge and too many words moving inside you, you cannot see the wordless beauty that can only be experienced in silence.

Abandon every attempt. Just be; don't strive, don't struggle, let go every support, hold on to the blind sense of being, brushing off all else. This is enough.

See what you're doing now. You're thinking. That spoils it. Learn to stay without thought. Even if for a few seconds. It's hard isn't it. This is the reason you have to ask yourself, "To whom do these thoughts come?" It's only a modality to cause you to stop thinking.

Be playful in the outer, not taking it too seriously but remember the Self! Do not lose yourself in the outer.

All metaphysical discussion is profitless unless it causes us to seek within the Self for the true reality. All controversies about creation, the nature of the universe, evolution, the purpose of God, etc., are useless. They are not conducive to our true happiness. People try to find out about things which are outside of them before they try to find out 'Who am I?' Only by the latter means can happiness be gained.

As you remain unattached the core essence that is you, within your beingness will come forward and will begin to unfold exquisitely. Expect this to take place and rest assured it never will. Engage a commentary from mind and it all stops again.

Your sadhana (practice) consists in reminding oneself forcibly about one's pure 'being', of not being anything in particular. There is nothing wrong in the idea 'I am the body', but limiting oneself to one body is the mistake. The question 'Who am I?', has no answer. No experience can answer it, for the self is beyond experience. It has no answer in consciousness and therefore, helps to go beyond consciousness.

First we must know ourselves as witnesses only, dimensionless and timeless centres of observation, and then realize that immense ocean of pure awareness, which is both mind and matter and beyond both.

Go beyond. Neither consciousness nor the 'I am' at the centre of it are you. Your true being is entirely unselfconscious, completely free from all self-identification with whatever it may be - gross, subtle or transcendental.

Your nature is Peace and Happiness. Thoughts are the obstacles to

realisation. One's meditation or concentration is meant to get rid of

obstacles and not to gain the Self. Does anyone remain apart from

the Self? No! The true nature of the Self is declared to be Peace. If

the same peace is not found, the non-finding is only a thought which

is alien to the Self. One practises meditation only to get rid of these

alien fancies. So, then, a thought must be quelled as soon as it rises.

Whenever a thought arises, do not be carried away by it. You become

aware of the body when you forget the Self. But can you forget the

Self? Being the Self how can you forget it? There must be two

selves for one to forget the other. It is absurd. So the Self is not

depressed; it is not imperfect: it is ever happy. The contrary feeling

is a mere thought which has actually no stamina in it. Be rid of

thoughts. Why should one attempt meditation? Being the Self one

remains always realised, only be free from thoughts.

You think that your health does not permit your meditation. This

depression must be traced to its origin. The origin is the wrong

identification of the body with the Self. The disease is not of the

Self. It is of the body. But the body does not come and tell you that

it is possessed by the disease. It is you who say it. Why? Because

you have wrongly identified yourself with the body.

The body itself is a thought. Be as you really are. There is no

reason to be depressed.

Sometimes people say they can smell freedom. They say they fall more and more into the embrace of That which is unspeakable. And I have to acknowledge that this is not merely an intellectual thought or conviction. It is a deep inner thing; a felt experience in the Heart beyond words and thoughts, and yet I have to tell you that what you are falling into Is and was already here - unchangingly. It is what you already are and no distance is involved. Has anyone ever heard of a falling where there was no distance? This is the fall where there is no distance. It's the greatest fall; the falling away of delusion.

When you drop all your ideas, fantasies and projections about who you are and what freedom is and remain completely empty, this is freedom.

Very few beings on this planet will refer to themselves as pure consciousness, as emptiness. Have you heard anyone speaking like this? You cannot say things like this. You could get locked up for this, but even if they lock you up, they just think they’ve got you locked up. You, the pure Self, cannot be locked up at all.
What you find is that the whole world is inside the jail and you are out! They are in the prison of egoic identity feeling sorry for you being in the ‘prison’ of their imagination, but actually, you are free. Isn’t it funny?

Only when a human being becomes empty of ego does it become a vessel of the manifestation of the Supreme. When there is sufficient space made through the absence of the person, then the divine cannot hide. It must reveal itself as the Lord inside that form.

Even after awakening to one's real nature, some habits may still appear to be playing, but their effects are gradually being thinned out through the grace of the Self. Your inner being knows, somehow, that despite all of this fluctuation, all is well within the grand functioning. It intuitively knows all is a passing show. The old tendencies are being spring cleaned out, leaving one in a state of serene neutrality and joy. And therein lies one's unfading happiness. Even when the body is sick, one remains in the undisturbed state of the Self. You are waltzing with the Supreme but there is no 'two’, no separation, just a wholeness.

It is only when you sit truthfully inside your Self that you can be truly generous in your expression. And you find you are not being generous—your life itself becomes the manifestation of generosity when the ego is no more.
